Reviewing Replacement Windows
This event has been postponed.
ADVANCED LEVEL (Registration by invitation only.)
- This event will only be open to reviewers working for State Historic Preservation Offices.
Windows are a significant feature of most historic buildings, and there are few rehabilitation projects that do not involve windows. Applying the Standards to the treatment of windows in a project involves both a justification for replacement and an evaluation of the characteristics of the replacement windows.
In this 90-minute webinar we will review existing NPS policies for applying the Secretary’s Standards to window replacement and look in some detail at how to evaluate any proposed replacement windows. Specific topics will include:
- Understanding how the condition and location of the existing windows can affect the needed characteristics of the replacements.
- Comparing the various levels of replacement from sash-only to rough opening installations.
- Correlating drawing details with visual effects of the installed material.
- Comparing the possibilities and limitations of various materials.
- Identifying common deficiencies in matching historic windows and opportunities to correct those deficiencies.
